The "Bohemian St. Tropez"
Sitges just outside Barcelona is a great spot to visit but perhaps an even greater destination to place your whole stay. Here you´ll find tranquillity but also some pulse, and for the one whom wants a big city feel, Barcelona is just about 30 minutes away. Sitges with its white-tiled houses and special light offers a contrast between bohemian and luxury, a vacation vibe and a local one, festivity and relaxation. The city has succeeded in resisting an overexploitation and maintaining its charm and special particularity.
Nothing is missing from hotel facilities here which makes it also a perfect place for bigger corporate events and celebrations. Sitges boasts one of Catalonia’s biggest hotels with over 300 rooms and complete conference facilities. The city also offers a variety of qualitative restaurants, lovely bars and cosy cafés. The beach, interrupted only by the small charming marina, the beautiful church and some small cliffs, stretches from the beginning of the city all the way to the end on the other side. The area is also famous for its micro climate, sometimes referred to as the "perfect weather", that gives mild sunny winters and cool sunny summer days. Often when it rains in Barcelona or in the neighbouring city Castelldefels, the residents of Sitges keeps enjoying sunlight and a clear sky.
